That's a good price for a 1tb sata3 hard drive. So in your other post you ran the HD TUNE PRO and found some bad sectors? Thats a sure sign of the hard drive starting to fail. I hope you got you files backed up so you don't lose them.
The WD 1tb Green with 64mb cache and at sata3 will not saturate the sata2 port but will be a good boost over what you have. I have a WD Veloceraptor and it's not saturating a sata2 port. The only thing that you would have to worry about is a SSD.
Yeah, unfortunately it got to the point where over 10% of my hard drive had damaged sectors. I backed up all my files to my external and netbook so I'm safe. I'm just sad that I'll lose some of the software that I've accumulated for the past 4 years or so.
So are you saying that the 1TB green will be able to run on my current system?
Thanks for the help on both posts!
